What makes us different

Our two year accelerated courses are developed alongside our retail partners to ensure our graduates have the most relevant and up to date skills the industry are looking for.

As a Fashion Retail Academy student, you'll also benefit from unrivalled industry enrichment including up to 3 months of work placement, personal mentors and projects set by brands. 

Our degree programmes are accelerated over two years instead of three to, and get you into your dream job a year faster than your peers.  You will save you time and money compared to a traditional degree format, without compromising on your education. 

I loved every minute of my time at the Fashion Retail Academy. Over the years, I have had some amazing opportunities and gained experience from well-known fashion brands. This has allowed me to go straight into the industry as a BAA alongside my course. It’s my dream job and I have the FRA to thank!
